repor ted Dick Weber, who
works at the center on behalf of the
Ambassado r Foundat ion.
" For instance. some of the handicapped
are not famil iar with modern
electric appliances," Mr. Weber
said J une 3 during a visit here . " So
when they flip the switch on a power
machine like a drill press or shaper,
it will be an experience for them ."
"I used safety guard s and power
feeds and modified some machines
to make them safe. so the student s'
hands will be as far away from danger
as possible," Mr. Weber commented.

W. Armstrong approved the Jordan
program last July II. Joseph locke.

was named director. "The purpose
of the vocational program is to help
students acquire a skill at which
they can work." said Mr. Locke.
